NLC students benefit from donation of air packs and tanks

On , In College News

DAWSON CREEK – Students taking H2S Alive and Confined Space courses at Northern Lights College are the beneficiary of a recent donation to the College by Action Health and Safety.

The donation consisted of nine MMR Firehawk air packs and five air tanks that will be used by the students taking safety courses offered through the Workforce Training/Continuing Education department.

The equipment allows workers to enter safely into confined spaces with potentially hazardous air. The equipment is valued at approximately $25,000.

“When department budgets are stretched the way they are today, this kind of donation is such a big help, so we’re very grateful to Action Health and Safety,” said Howard Mayer, dean of Access, Business and International programs at NLC.

NLC has Workforce Training departments located at each of its campuses in Chetwynd, Dawson Creek, Fort Nelson, Fort St. John and Tumbler Ridge. For the current schedule of courses available, check the website at, or contact the nearest NLC campus.
